I Have An Idea For a Social Firm. How Can I Tell If It Will Work?

Social Firms UK has developed a tool called The Social Firm DIY Feasibility Toolkit which has been specifically designed to help groups and individuals to work through the feasibility process for their business ideas. Although designed to assist with Social Firm business idea feasibility, it is appropriate for usage by any type of social enterprise or group wanting to carry out a feasibility study on a particular idea. By providing the tools for you to do this yourself, often in a group setting, it reduces costs that would otherwise have been spent in drawing in external expertise to help with feasibility, it increases group ownership of the process and the idea itself, and it develops the skills of those involved in the process to better understand the business perspective. The tool is available as a PDF which can be ordered from us via the online Resource Centre: it is free to members of Social Firms UK, 50 to members of the Social Enterprise Coalition, and 90 to non-members.
